More frequent service on London Overground’s Watford Junction to Euston route
Customers will benefit from more regular services on the Watford Junction to Euston route from Sunday 17 November, as Transport for London (TfL) will start to run four trains per hour (approximately every 15 minutes) throughout the day.
This boost in capacity and frequency builds on the four train per hour service which has been operating during the morning and evening peak since September this year.
Rory O'Neill, TfL's General Manager for London Overground, said: "A more frequent service on the London Overground Watford Junction to Euston route will benefit customers whenever they are travelling. Providing a train every 15 minutes all day will offer greater capacity and make it even easier to get around."
These additional services are possible due to the ongoing introduction of London Overground's new Class 710 electric trains on the route. The new generation of London Overground trains continue to offer the convenience of walk-through carriages and air-conditioning but include additional features such as free Wi-Fi, USB charging points and improved real-time information screens. They will operate alongside the existing trains currently in use on the route
